Editorial Focus

New Madrid is the national journal of the low-residency MFA program at Murray State University. It takes its name from the New Madrid seismic zone, which falls within the central Mississippi Valley and extends through western Kentucky.

Reading periods go from January 15 - March 15 and from August 15 - October 15. See the New Madrid website for guidelines and specific themes.
